Burnside Album Details
Man On Fire, Habitat
Man on Fire’s third full-length release proves that this is a band poised for the worldwide stage. Featuring the amazing fretwork of guitar legend Adrian Belew as primary guitarist, Habitat is a monumental epic of modern rock. Belew brings his signature style to this release, providing a stunning array of searing solos and one of a kind textural soundscapes to the recordings, adding a whole new layer to the band’s singularly unique sound. Together they work to create Man on Fire’s most definitive musical statement to date. Conceptually Habitat details a variety of different lives existing within the confines of a single urban city block. Each of the tracks paints a musical portrait of one or more of the individuals living within this block, allowing for the CD as a whole to reflect many varied emotions and dynamics. In addition to the contributions from Adrian Belew, “Habitat” features the amazing artistry of Kansas violinist David Ragsdale, who adds an intoxicating combination of gorgeous, melodic atmosphere and fierce technical virtuosity to the tracks on which he performs. The final mix of Habitat was mastered by veteran mastering engineer Brad Blackwood (Evanescence).
